Testimonial: “Dr. Gileadi’s translation is clear and smooth, allowing the reader to appreciate the power and beauty of Isaiah as conveyed in the Hebrew original”—Professor Herbert M. Wolf, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois.
From Avraham Gileadi: One of the building blocks toward a person’s gaining his own understanding of Isaiah’s prophetic message is to become familiar with using a concordance to search individual terms, word links, key words, codenames, and imagery in order to obtain Isaiah’s definitions of these. If meanings we had previously assigned to them, for example, differ from Isaiah’s, we may need to unlearn these to get at their real meaning. In this Analytical Translation many such terms are highlighted for convenience, making the search easier. These, and cross-references to other parts of the Book of Isaiah, help unravel its amazing interconnectedness and Isaiah’s practice of layering “prophecies within a prophecy.”

their heads crowned with everlasting joy; let them obtain joy and gladness,
and sorrow and sighing flee away.
